A woman in her late 70s suffered serious leg injuries after falling over in Stevenage this morning.

Fire crews, ambulances and an air ambulance were called to a house in Canterbury Way at 4.05am to help the woman.

She was conscious and breathing but had suffered serious trauma to her leg so required a lot of support to be removed safely from the house.

After being removed she was taken to Lister Hospital by land ambulance in a serious by stable condition.

Magpas Helimedix doctor Zoe Smeed and paramedic Dan Cody were also there and helped treat the woman.
